Robyn Regehr says he gladly waived his no-trade clause in Buffalo for the chance to chase the Stanley Cup with the Los Angeles Kings. The bruising defenseman went through his first practice with the defending Stanley Cup champions on Wednesday, two days after they acquired him from the Sabres. Regehr should play a big role immediately for the Kings, who believe he'll fill the only obvious need in their lineup. Kings general manager Dean Lombardi believes they've got a good shot at re-signing Regehr, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Regehr says he's only focused on getting up to speed with his new team in time for the postseason. Lombardi didn't make a major move at the deadline, saying he's happy with his roster.
